This week's interview features the user littlegonkyboy.
When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username littlegonkyboy?
"Well, I discovered NG in 2004 when I was 10-11 but at the time I didn't had a internet connection (I was on public school computers when i discovered it) also... making an account at 10-11 years old age on NG it's like saying "hey guys look at me I'm a 11 year old who discovered NG for the first time" and we know how it ends with this cases (you know.. insults and stuff like "GTFO of the internet child")"
Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?
"Yep, I changed, when i signed on NG (2011) i was depressed... bad at school, depressed, insulted by friends and generally kinda odd, but when I failed my exams strangely I changed, the next year I restarted the 4th grade in my school and I began to study more often, my votes uprised, I started to become more happy and I began to socialise more with the new people I met, so yes.. in real life I changed much.. but on NG.. I feel like the same.. I have never been a great poster in the past and I'm still like that."
Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?
"Well, users that affected me... in the past that was this "girl" called Rivergrey, I was a great friend with her, we chatted and stuff, but then when she died ("she" posted it in her page) I was very upset, she kinda affected me, but then someone discovered it was a fake account and with sadness arrived rage.. so yes "she" was one of the users that affected me in the past. anyway other users that I like are Skaren (we talk on Steam sometimes), EmmaVolt (where are you Emma??? we chatted on Skype, now you're vanished) and... I don't know there are so many!"
Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?
littlegonkyboy: "Well, not enemies in the literal way, but as trolls there is somebody (let me list them):
mandog: stupid troll who posts senseless stuff that I find annoying.
GhostWriterNext: furry who's obsessed with bad writing, shitposting and stuff, not that annoying but somekind.
e102delta1379: sonic fag who's obsessed with Sonic, swears for nothing and I generally hate him because it's the typical case of DeviantArt fag who posts Original Characters (recolors) of Sonic claiming that they are original...90% of Sonic fanbase is like this guy."
What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer? And is there another forum user that you want to see getting interviewed by me?
"The forums... these days like some people say.. they are pretty empty and with boring posts, also the users who frequent them are too few (OMG NEWGROUNDS IS DYING !!!!!111!!!), anyways I like to lurk in General and Videogames section, also NG is not dying... it's just in a depressed phase.. maybe if we update it with cool stuff (not shit like the games factory 2 or Html5 support, those things ruined NG more than benefiting it) somehow it will attract new users.
I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?
"Opinion about Moderators? I've never had problems with moderators so I can't say certainly if they are good or not, but you know.. I think they do their job but sometimes they are a bit lazy (it happened sometimes that stupid threads didn't get deleted)"
Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?
"It would be good to become a moderator but I don't stay so much on NG,so as a moderator I can't do so much because I'm always offline (UltraBear I'm talking to you).. anyways if I become a moderator I would like to become a forum moderator.
The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?
"I personally liked the redesign, I was very happy to see the new design with new cool features and the return (even if for a day) of many old users, I know many people hated it because of its flashy style and stuff, but personally I liked it.
The only thing that I don't like are the level icons, it looks like they ripped them from a Final Fantasy SNES game, also they are bad in general."
In 2011, you released some stick animations. When did you start animating? Are you planning do release more flashes in : the future?
"I started animating during the spring of 2011, when I was depressed and I didn't want to spend time studying for school, so for passing time I began doing those animations just for fun and I don't think I'm going to do more of these now, I stopped losing time making bad animations (I mean look at it, the sticks are badly animated,also some asshole schoolmates looked at them and said.. "you must have no social life")"
Judging from your art, you seem to be a fan of Homestuck. Describe Homestuck to our readers and what you like about the series.
"Fan? Well not so much, I started reading it just because Vnzi (NG user) suggested it to me, at first I was reluctant because she said it was complicated (time shenaningans, complicated storyline) but you know.. it wasn't that complicated after all, when you start to read it with interest it's pretty easy and time shenaningans aren't even complicated to understand, but now that I have to read 5 pages everyday (updates) I read it with no more interest I mean.. there's a big difference between reading 100-200 pages everyday and 5 pages everyday, you can't be satisfied from a book by reading 5 pages per day.
Also.. what I like about the series?? the story and the characters, it's also a webcomic full of references (movies,games etc..) but I can't understand many of them because I've never seen the movies or games that have them. describing it.. well:
4 boys receive a game called SBURB and when they begin to play it stuff happens, the earth is destroyed and the kids are teleported in 4 planets in the game, their objective is to recreate the universe and ascend to GodTier status, but in the same time a group of 12 trolls from a failed session (they are aliens called trolls) begin to troll the kids to make them "fail" but in the end they become "friends" when they first meet. Ican't say all the story because I can spoiler something. Ihis is the beginning (well not the beginning.. when they meet it's the half of the comic......... and half of the trolls are dead... BWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WHYYYY :°°°°-((( sorry if I spoilered"
You live in Italy. What do you think about your country, what do you like and what bugs you about it? If you had to live in another country, which one would you choose and why?
"About my country? Italy, it's one of the most beautiful states for Arts and Archeological stuff but the worst for politics and managent of properties like industries. We have industries that fail because of bad management and crisis politics that spends public money to go on prostitutes and to eat in costly restaurants. We have the worst case of bigotry in the world and the most retarted electors who always vote the same idiot that ruins Italy every year and you wanna hear something funny? That idiot got arrested for fraud but the idiots wants to free him."
In 2012, you spent your holidays in Sardinia. Tell our readers about your favourite moment(s) of this vacation.
"I always spent my holidays in Sardinia, but if you want to hear about this one I'll tell you. That year we gone late in Sardinia because our grandmother had an health problem (RIP) but when we gone I wasn't happy at first because I always tought about her, but the worst thing was that everyday there was bad weather in Sardinia, so we couldn't go to the sea... yeah I have to admit, those weren't my best vacations, the only thing that I enjoyed was to watch movies on the notebook and the start travel (I always liked to go on ships, especially when you have a cabin)"
Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?
"Well a secret, I have an hole in the left ear lobe that wasn't caused by a earring, I had it from the birth. My profile says that I'm 23 but I'm 20. I don't know what to say anymore."
What can we expect from you in the future, littlegonkyboy?
"Well.. I hope to stay more on NG, and I hope to go well in university (I start this year in September maybe) also, I want to become a progammer (videogames and stuff) and I hope to succeed with it. ( Yeah I know that indie programmers many times remain unknown, but I want to try.. also no worries, I'm not going to come here to NG to post about my game kickstarter if I'm going to do it, or at least I'm going to post it if I make a decent game.. too many shitty flash games programmers use kickstarter just because they want money)"
